AT / AA 50

Edgar Degas - L'Absinthe (1876)

A more conventional one from Oneohtrix Point Never this time, while the majority of his work is droney dreamy ambient soundscapes, the title track from his second major album Returnal plays out much differently from anything else on the album. The end result is something that sounds akin to The Knife or Fever Ray, especially when the pitch shifted and distorted vocals come into the mix, when it first came out I was stunned, I still am to an extent up until then I had only heard the EP version of this song (which sounds more like something off his most recent album Replica). I only wish we could have heard more of that lovely Juno 60 work towards the end before it fades out.
